Post-Pandemic Primary Care:Respond, Recover, Rebuild

Post-Pandemic Primary Care: Respond, Recover, Rebuild

Primary care has risen to the challenge of COVID-19 and while we wouldn’t dare say we have become used to its sweeping impacts on our work and lives, we can say we have adjusted to provide the best care possible for patients under trying circumstances.

Teams have had to cross chasms to take care of our communities but now, while the end may seem to be a pinprick of light in the distance, it is at least in sight. But in many ways, there is an equally daunting future.

We only have an inkling of what lies ahead – delayed care, ongoing effects of the pandemic and the complex interactions of these with our society- but we need to prepare for it. To move forward we need to act to make healthcare better- we need to respond, recover, and rebuild.
